Riot games Reveals League of Legends Volibear's New Abilities


League of Legends’ Volibear update has finally been revealed in full following a livestream event that introduced players to the reworked version of the Relentless Storm. Volibear’s new set of abilities following his Visual and Gameplay Update preserve his role as a fighter while looking to give him more utility and a way to better keep up with more modern champions and their kits. The updates were fully revealed as well following the update to show what he can do which means it’ll soon be time for players to try him out themselves on the PBE and in real games.

Volibear was first announced for a rework in mid-2019, so the champion’s reveal has been a long time coming now since it had to wait for Fiddlesticks to make his re-debut on the Rift first. You can find all of his abilities below to get an idea of how he stacks up against other champions and what playing as him will feel like.

Volibear’s passive, named The Relentless Storm, has been completely overhauled. Instead of healing for 30 percent of his maximum health over six seconds when at low health, the champion’s attacks and abilities grant attack speed. This causes his basic attacks to deal bonus magic damage to nearby enemies.

His Q is named Thundering Smash. Volibear still plants all four feet on the ground and gains speed towards enemies. But now, in perhaps the most controversial of all the changes in the rework, Volibear no longer flips the target over himself. He instead bites the enemy, stunning and damaging them. Despite losing the iconic flip animation, having an actual stun instead of just the displacement should be a small buff to the champ.

League of Legends Volibear's New Abilities


  • Volibear's attacks and abilities grant attack speed, and eventually cause his basic attacks to deal bonus magic damage to nearby enemies.
  • Volibear gains speed towards enemies, stunning and damaging the first one he attacks.
  • Volibear damages an enemy, applying on-hit effects and marking them. Casting this spell again on the same target deals bonus damage and heals Volibear.
  • Volibear summons a lightning bolt at a location, dealing damage and slowing enemies while granting Volibear a shield if he's inside the blast radius.
  • Volibear leaps to a target location, slowing and damaging enemies beneath him while gaining bonus health. Enemy towers near his landing location become temporarily disabled.
